A new 'Race for the World' sim racing championship featuring six Formula 1 drivers has been formed, with the aim of raising $100,000 dollars for a COVID-19 charity.
Over the next seven days, there will be three nights of racing, with each round featuring two races that are 25% in length - the first and second of which occurs on Saturday, April 11th.
The following rounds will take place on Tuesday, April 14th and Friday, April 17th. The races will take place on Codemasters' F1 2019 game, and each round will start at 6PM BST.
Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will also race, having competed in sim races recently with professional racers.

So happy to make this happen.
We all need to be united in this and to see all of this group coming together for one cause feels great.
1st Event will be tomorrow at 7PM CEST.
